Oreo is our internationally famous dog. She has her own cottage at the Wash House. If you wish, she will gladly be your personal pet for the duration of your stay. Oreo loves to hop on golf carts and go for a ride, anywhere.
Our dock in Black Sound is available for cottage guests to tie up a rental or their own small boat at no additional charge. The dock will accommodate a yacht up to 80 feet with a 7-foot draft. Rate schedules for docking and storage of larger boats that require the use of electricity are available upon request. A saltwater washdown is available to rinse boats and clean fish. A freezer in the Wash House is available for bait storage.
Built from native Abaco pine in the traditional Bahamian style during the 1940’s, each cottage has been lovingly preserved and maintained by the Linton family since 1960. The two Ocean Cottages overlook 3/4 of a mile of pristine white sand beach with swimming, kayaking and snorkeling right out their front doors. Both are surrounded by a lush tropical garden of sea grape, palm, and native trees for complete privacy. The Harbour Cottage is perched on a coral outcrop that juts into Black Sound, just a short walk down a private path from the beach on Long Bay. Flanked by native mangrove and adjacent to Linton’s deep-water dock, it features a spacious harborside deck, with a lovely gazebo overlooking the sound.
Each authentic Bahamian-style cottage features a living room/dining room combination, a well-equipped kitchen, comfortable bedrooms, and a bathroom with shower, screened porch, patios and decks. They’re uniquely designed with wonderful Abaco pine paneling, cathedral ceilings and ceiling fans – and come equipped with CD players and VHF radios, hammocks, BBQ grills, outside showers, beach chairs & umbrellas and beach towels.
The ocean cottages do not have telephones, television or Internet, but telephone, fax, and Internet access are available in our office (in the middle of the property) a short walk away. Housekeeping services are included, and on-site laundry services are available for a modest additional charge. The grounds are well cared for and maintained daily.
Guests are welcome to moor their personal or rental boat at our well-lit, deep-water dock on Black Sound’s harbour – or borrow one or more of our “fat tire” cruiser-style bicycles to explore the island. We also have a kayak and paddles for exploring Black Sound or playing in the ocean.
